Sir Harold Evans has been voted by his colleagues as the all-time greatest British newspaper editor and has enjoyed a flourishing high-profile career in publishing in the United States.

His new memoir, "My Paper Chase", looks at his early days as a reporter, his award-winning journalism at the Sunday Times through the 70s, and his new found life in America.

He spoke to the BBC about the future of his industry - from the London Evening Standard's decision to become a free newspaper to the rapid rise of online journalism.
